Over number 47, first ball of the over is bowled by australian debutant Mckay Sachin paddle scoops it but the ball lands in Hauritz's hand and also the match. At one time INDIA were smoothly raising towards the target when SACHIN and RAINA were at crease. After RAINA'S departure hopes were still on SACHIN dat today he could make it, but with his dismissal indian hopes of winning d game went in vain. SACHIN played an epic innings of 175 actually one of his career best innings. What more can u expect from the MASTER BLASTER when 50 percent of runs of indian innings came from SACHIN'S bat. In 20 years old career many times SACHIN faced such sitauation when he has to build the innings alone and helplessly see the other batsmen getting out at the other end. noone exepect RAINA gave him support and added 100+ runs. young guns like yuvraj, dhoni, gamhir, jadeja failed to fire. had anybody contributed 30s or 40s or build up partnership wid SACHIN the game would've been in INDIA'S FAVOUR. And the critics who were criticizing SACHIN on his fitness and recent failures would've got the answer. who other than SACHIN has the capability to bear the expeectations of 100 crores peoples and his hunger for runs is never-ending. three-four failures and he's on the target of critics but all along his career it has been the humbleness and nature of SACHIN, he never gave answer by words indeed gave answer by his deed, his play, his bat. One can't expect from SACHIN to play a winning knock or score a century in every match. Yesterday also he was left alone at the crucial time when he badly needed someone who could just stay wid him.
all i can wish is india win the rest of two matches and take the series 4-3.
